Park at Holston High Point and take this trail down where it intersects the Chestnut Flats Trail. From there a number of trails may be accessed. Rye Patch (2023) and Low Gap (2024) intersect and lead up or down. The Holston Mountain West trail is also accessible via the Chestnut Flats Connector (2027). Steep grade through the forest. Pleasant but best part about the trail is the access to the rest of the trail system from Holston High Point.
